Where does OurSurfing.com come from?

As mentioned above, OurSurfing.com might arrive at your computer bundled with freeware. This means that whenever you access file sharing or torrent websites you need to be careful about what you click and what files or programs you download.

Both websites are related to Elex Technology Co. Ltd, and this program is known for developing such suspicious products as Yet Another Cleaner and even the V9 browser hijacker.

What does OurSurfing.com do?

To put it simply, the OurSurfing.com website itself does not do anything unless you allow it to expose you to potentially corrupted pages.

What’s more, apart from this apparent security breach, OurSurfing.com also cannot provide you with reliable search service because it utilizes Yahoo! Search engine. Consequently, all the search results that you access through OurSurfing.com will definitely be customized to display various commercial offers based on your browsing history.

This browser hijacker thrives on advertising because when you click an ad displaying on this page, the hijacker’s creators are paid a particular sum of money. It wouldn’t be such a bad thing if the ads were reliable, but they might as well redirect you to corrupted sites that distribute malware, so there is no time to waste: remove OurSurfing.com right now and save yourself the trouble of getting infected with malware.
